Title: "Patience" Material: Springstone, (Zimbabwean Black Granite) Dimensions: 20" height x 3.5" width x 13.5" depth Artist: Famed Shona Sculptor, Boet Nyariri Country: Zimbabwe (Southern Africa) Sculpted in Springstone by Boet Nyariri, one of the hottest artists in Zimbabwe today. Boet was the winner of the fiercely contested sculpture category of the prestigious National Arts Merit Awards (NAMA) in 2012 and 2010, which are awarded by Zimbabwe's National Arts Council and are like the Oscars for Zimbabwe. Well-deserved national recognition from Zimbabwe's arts elite for one of the brightest stars in a new generation of talent. Boet was born in 1977 in the rural area of Mhondoro in Zimbabwe. His mother is from the Tonga tribe and his father is Sena. When Boet was at secondary school, he went to live with his grandfather and it was then that he met sculptor Tinashe Makaza and began sculpting with him. Stone sculpture became a part of him and this passion has never left him. His delicate and intricately detailed sculptures, combined with original and intriguing subject matter, make him the finest representational sculptor in Zimbabwe. Boet's work is fresh and dramatic. It takes a huge amount of skill to create such detailed and delicate pieces from very hard stone. He now has over a decade of sculpting experience. Boet has worked with and been inspired by some of the biggest names of the younger generation of Zimbabwean artists, including Dominic Benhura and Ignatius Zhuwakiyi. Boet was an Artist in Residence at the prestigious Chapungu Sculpture Park in Harare from 1997 to 2004. His work was shown at the DED Guest House/German Embassy workshops, at which he was awarded with tools and equipment. His work is also shown by galleries across the world, including USA, Netherlands, United Kingdom and South Korea.
